The Washington Post is reporting that during the lock out Washington Wizards' forward/ center/ XBOX 360er is using the time to expand his leadership role on the team by organizing team workouts at his Maryland home (only two people showed up, neither of the variety to take shots from Andray). This is surprising considering that this is the same Andray who's encountered--what shall we call??--some distractions over the last 6 years. For example there was:
the getting robbed/ shot (definitely not his fault, terrible that it happened, very glad he's okay);
the reckless driving (surely, his fault);
the solicitating (a female cop dressed probably in high trollopista; liability likely depends the frequency of rejection that night at the night club, Grey Goose consumption, and the degree of high trollipness. Like, if we're talking XXL sweatpants and a way over-sized--and over-holed--Max Headroom t-shirt then that's all on you 'Dray);
and, inevitably fighting a fellow 7+ foot teammate (juries out on this one, both strike DBSF as the kind of guy that loses all personal self-control when playing Madden and dominating a friend like 28-3 in the second quarter and the friend gets up and with no warning turns off the XBOX effectively ending the 25 point dominance and establishing some serious concerns about the legitimacy of whether or not the 25 point lead with a whole half left of football justifies a win in the on-going Madden challenge).
And, it's not just the players. The NBA supposedly fined Charlotte Bobcats' owner Michael Jordan $100K (or, what Jordan used to lose betting on one hole of golf to Greg Norman in the 1990's) for commenting on a player, Andrew Bogut (an Australian, so really like 0.75 of a player), which caused issues--from the standpoint of the NBA--over the league's current collective bargaining issues. Interestingly, there were no fines last year for Jordan fraternizing with elite college basketball players and telling them to wear his shoes.
